Happy Hopping!!!

Alright so I searched in my photos and there does not seem to be a recent photo of me...but I am going to join in some fun they have going on over at Pensieve! It's called a Blog Hop! It just sounds like fun to me!

Anyway, so now I need to tell you about myself...

A funny thing happened almost 3 years ago...my DH Martin talked me into looking for a house in small town Beamsville. Hmmm...well, we found the perfect house on the main drag in Beamsville...it even had a sweet space for Creative Bug. It was more than we wanted to spend but we couldn't resist...so we have just celebrated 2 years here in our beautiful home and haven't looked back!I quit my job last week...after 9 years..we decided I would stay home and focus on our 3 children and my business. Our children are Sarah (7), Sean (5) and Simon (1). Creative Bug is a business where I mostly run children's birthday parties, make custom cakes and invitations, decorations, etc...It's sure is fun!!! I love my job!

I am still coming to terms with having left viable employment...I spent 5 years in university where I completed a BSc in Psychology and then my MBA...hard to believe I gave it up...I think we are going to have some fun with me home though...let's hope so!!!

Ohhh, you can find me on Twitter @Cre8vBug and Facebook! Let's hop together!

Enjoy!
Heather

Sounds like you've got an awesome business setup :) There are many ladies online who have "given up" their education to be at home for awhile. I don't think it will ever go to waste though! So don't feel bad :)

Nice to virtually meet you!

Congratulations on jumping ship and joining the WAHM ranks. It isn't always easy but it is very rewarding.

Congrats on putting your family first. It's big adjustment to go from working outside the home to being at home all the time, but totally worth it.

Good for you for becoming a SAHM! It's a hard job but very rewarding :)

(I say this after being up half the night with a sick kid and not getting my own sick day!)

Wanda said...

Great for you! What a cool biz!
I hope you great success!

I have teenagers.....so I teach at their high school. Which is really cool for our family.

Otherwise, I stayed home when they were all little.
It was totally worth it!

The investment in their lives is very evident!

I'm sure that was a big jump! From viable to employment to being a SAHM would be a big jump! Stopping by from the hop!
